Performance Marketing Manager

  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full-time

Company Description

We believe everyone should be able to participate and thrive in the economy. So we’re building tools that make commerce easier and more accessible to all. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. Our new reader helps our sellers accept chip cards and NFC payments, and our Cash app lets people pay each other back instantly. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. Let’s shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.

Job Description

We started with a simple idea—that everyone should be able to accept credit and debit cards—and we’ve been rethinking buying and selling ever since. Square currently operates in 5 markets globally and this role is based in our London office.

We are looking for a data-driven, results-oriented performance marketer to help drive new user growth through Paid Media Channels. As a member of the UK marketing team, you’ll be responsible for helping build, manage, scale and measure campaigns across a variety of digital channels, working with the wider marketing team to test and optimise paid marketing channels iteratively. You’ll lead campaign set-up, measurement and optimisation in conjunction with our agency partners, particularly focused on improving our acquisition efforts on search and social as well as identifying new and effective digital media opportunities to expand the Square brand.

You Will:

  • Help support acquisition campaigns on offline and online channels including Search, Paid Social, Display, Mobile, and Direct Mail, with a primary focus on digital channel performance

  • Direct and manage agency performance on social, display and paid search to achieve goals and ROI targets

  • Write creative briefs to define programme objectives and KPIs, optimising campaigns to maximise ROI

  • Use a process of testing to prove hypotheses and recommend performance optimisations

  • Use a data-driven approach to manage campaigns and derive insights on strategy and performance

  • Assist in the maintenance and monitoring of reports, budgets, campaign performance, ROI, LTV, and other channel metrics

  • Help support weekly and monthly reporting of channel metrics, goals, and other KPIs

  • Monitor web analytics dashboards and key reporting tools, pointing out key areas of importance

  • Work closely with the other teams and stakeholders to ensure acquisition goals are met


You Have:

  • A BA or equivalent practical experience

  • 2+ years of social and search performance marketing campaign management, with agency-side experience highly valued

  • A deep understanding of the key metrics and levers available to drive performance marketing optimisations and cost-per-acquisition improvements, particularly in AdWords and Facebook

  • A strong grasp of web analytics, A/B testing, and metrics-driven marketing

  • Strong analytical ability and advanced Excel skills, with SQL experience a nice to have

  • Attention to detail and the ability to effectively multi-task in a deadline driven atmosphere

  • Creativity in developing actionable analysis and recommendations and problem-solving

  • Self-starter attitude and high degree of motivation to go above and beyond the task at hand

  • An ability to succeed in a collaborative, start-up environment
